How I'm Wearing: Denim Shorts

I've been asked about outfit posts and why I don't do them, there are a few reasons but instead of explaining those I thought I'd try out this idea. I've photographed three different looks based around a simple pair of denim shorts using items from my wardrobe. I love reading other people's styling posts like Michelle's Ways To Wear, I think they're great for inspiration. I know I already post more general style inspiration with the Wednesday posts but I thought I'd make up some actual outfits that I will be wearing rather than all of the items I can't afford. I hope you them them, let me know if you'd like to see more like this!
I bought my denim shorts from Internacionale for £16.99.
(I must apologise for the colouring of these photographs, it was late evening when I took them!)

Outfit One:
Jumper: Urban Outfitters, Necklace: Sawyer & Scout, Belt & Brogues: Topshop, Nail Polish: The Body Shop, Cycle Shorts: New Look
This jumper from UO is currently my most favourite thing to wear, so much so I ordered the black version yesterday! What makes me love it even more is that I very nearly returned it thinking it was too expensive (it's £38) however something in my mind said keep it and I've definitely got my money's worth! The other day I wore it to work with the Shell Necklace and I just loved the combination. The Body Shop nail polish is beautiful but as with all glitter polishes its such a pain to remove. I love it when the lace from the cycle shorts peeps out under the denim shorts so I thought I'd include those too!

Outfit Two:
Brogues: River Island, Vest & Belt: Topshop, Scarf: H&M, Nail Polish: Models Own
There are obviously so many variations of this look but it's simplicity is why I love it so much. I've chosen a printed scarf, patterned brogues and statement nail colour to add interest to it but really you could wear any accessories and it would still look good. I was a big fan of Emma Watson's festival look so I guess this is kind of like my interpretation. I also have to recommend the basic Vest from Topshop, I find these are so comfortable and versatile, they go with everything!

Outfit Three:
Brogues, Tee & Belt: Topshop, Leather Bag: Ebay, Floral Headband: Primark, Bracelets: Sawyer & Scout, Nail Polish: Rimmel

Another simple and casual look that can be enhanced by adding bright accessories and a classic nail polish. I think this would be a great outfit for a festival with the floral headband and charm bracelets adding a cute girly touch. The bag from Ebay was such a bargain, you really can find some lovely things on there. (P.S Please excuse the state of my shoes!!)

I must start work on my June film roundup soon as this month I've decided to do in it parts, it's only the 16th and I've watched 11 films and have several more lined up! I apologise in advance if it becomes movie overload around here shortly.
Anyway, I hope you've liked this new post idea!
